The collage was created from fragments of some of my mixed media studies of Venice and Cuba combined with image transfer of digital images and prints of the 2 cities onto a textured gesso ground to create a distressed effect to reflect the faded grandeur of the 2 cities.

My paintings have been selected for & exhibited at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour Mall Galleries, The Royal Watercolour Society, Bankside Gallery and the National Open Art group shows in London. Experimental painting techniques have always played a large part in my work since studying constructed textiles at the Royal College of Art. I now channel my interest in creating unusual effects onto paper and canvas rather than fabric. Textiles, texture and pattern continue to influence my paintings which include a series of mixed media ‘portraits’ of vintage dresses on paper and canvas. My paintings are often built up using a variety of processes including layers of textured gesso, watercolours, inks, acrylics or oils and are then sanded and re-worked to develop a unique and enigmatic identity. I also create digital art prints which I sometimes incorporate into my paintings and run small informal workshops in experimental painting techniques from my studio in a converted Victorian school in London SE22. My work has been sold to a wide range of collectors in the UK, Europe, USA, and Australia including Dulwich Picture Gallery as a gift for one of their trustees, a Silicone Valley billionaire, a Hollywood film producer, a magician, a forensic tax investigator and a stand-up comedienne amongst many others.
